Complete the partnership progress questionnaire
The questionnaire, which begins on the following page, gives you the opportunity to reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of your partnership to help in identifying where it’s at and the things that may need to change to strengthen the partnership and to achieve its goals.
Some ways to complete the questionnaire:
- Each organisation involved in the partnership completes the questionnaire separately. After that, both/all organisations come together to share and discuss results.
- Individuals complete the questionnaire anonymously and an independent person collates the results for discussion.
- Partners sit down and answer the questions together.
Keep in mind that while doing the questionnaire together could support openness and transparency, it may also reinforce a power imbalance. It could result in people not answering what they truly believe in order to maintain relations, or to satisfy management.
After you’ve finished the questionnaire a couple of tools will be provided that describe the results to assist you in discussing the results and planning the way forward.
*Note, this questionnaire will only be of value if it is used as a discussion, relationship-building, and planning tool by partners together.
